Wildlife. Sports. Aircraft. Portraits. With its 100-400mm zoom range, advanced optics, and reliable weather sealing, this fast, full-frame mirrorless lens is as versatile as you need it to be. Superb optical performance at any distance ensures you’ll cover every eventuality. Welcome to your next workhorse.
From extremely close to incredibly far—lock on. AF performance is fast, accurate, and exceptionally quiet. Birds to planes, tracking is rock-steady when used in conjunction with Nikon Z mirrorless cameras that incorporate Animal or Vehicle AF modes. The lens’ outstanding resolution is maintained even when using a teleconverter.
Sharp at any distance
Sharpness is superb throughout the frame. Nikon’s ED and Super ED glass control chromatic aberration from the centre to the edge of the image—even when shooting at the widest aperture or at close distances.
Powerful VR performance equivalent to 5.5 stops lets you shoot handheld at slower shutter speeds without sacrificing sharpness. Minimum focus is just 0.75 m at the wide-angle end of the zoom range, and 0.98 m at full extension.
Out of the shadows
Anti-reflective ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings virtually eliminate flare, ghosting, and coma by suppressing incidental light coming from any direction. Clarity is exceptional throughout the frame, even in backlit situations.
Built to endure.
Go the distance with a lens that’s designed for the great outdoors. Full weather sealing keeps out dust and moisture, especially around the lens mount and all moving parts.¹ The front element has Nikon's protective non-stick fluorine coat, which repels dust and moisture and easily wipes clean.
Lightweight & Balanced.
Keep your kit bag manageable, whether it’s a hike to the hide or a walk to the pitch. Despite its versatile 100-400mm focal length range, this lens weighs in at approx.1.35 kg.²
This lens maintains its centre of gravity when you zoom, letting you maintain precise framing from wide-angle to telephoto. Ideal when shooting video using a gimbal.
